Abstract

To swim like dolphins, to climb like geckoes, to run like leopards, to only sleep two hours like giraffes, to fast like Alaskan sled dogs do. The number of research projects, developed by private and public institutions, for the military use of neurosciences, biotechnologies, nanotechnologies, robotics and all the other emerging technologies is on the rise. Faced with a systematic and overall change in human identity, what kind of society can we expect? In designing super-soldiers will we get better citizens?
